Students attend summit
Eastern New Mexico University freshman theater major Kyree McField, freshman criminal justice and psychology major Shani Morris and junior public relations major, Jordan Anderson, attended the Governor’s Achievement Gap Summit on Oct. 26 in Albuquerque.
About 12 students attended, with the group comprised of Eastern’s students and junior high and high school students.
The students gave four educational recommendations to the New Mexico Board of Education and the governor’s office.
The recommendations were more encouragement from parents and teachers coupled with more hands-on learning, giving students career paths, more teachers in the classroom and better role models.
